Jodee Kulp's book "Our FAScinating Journey" is a wonderful resource for every family that is touched by FASD. Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders has been around as long as alcohol has, but as an identified syndrome it is really in its infancy. There are not well worn paths that parents like me can follow and I appreciate the great lengths that Jodee went to in documenting the various therapies, strategies and teaching methods that they used in their home.The second page of the books states, "Karl, Liz and I cannot give you answers for the person you love with prenatal brain injury. Every person is different. We can, however, share with you our journey." Their journey made a path where there was none and I am thankful for that.This book should not be viewed as a "one time read" but rather as a resource manual that may be read in parts and reviewed as needed. It may be that a family implements only a few of the ideas in the book and I believe that, given the layout of the book, it was the author's intent to give the reader that choice.
Our FAScinating Journey, by Jodee Kulp, is an essential reference guide for anyone raising an FASD child. It is a well-written 'one-stop-shop' for parents and caregivers which provides detailed slutions to the everyday problems that families face a a result of FASD.Parents of FASD children usually spend thusands of dollars and hours on ineffective therapies and strategies. At #39.95, this book is a bargain. Considerng that Our FAScinating Journey is also a success story, this is a must read.Susan Rose, DirectorFAS Support Networkof Manhattan, Queens and Long Island, NY
This is one of the most practical guides to therapies and treatments for FAS. There are references for physical therapies, sensory therapies and food allergies. Jodee and her daughter have tried to collect all their experiences to make them available to other families so that they do not hve to "reinvent the wheel". The companion book, *All That I Can Be* by Liz Kulp is perfect for teenagers who want to know what FAS is all about.
I have found "The Best I Can Be," "Families at Risk," and "Our FAScinating Journey," to be comprehensive, informative, and inspiring work. I recommend them for all families raising children prenatally exposed to substances.These books represent the experiences and lessons of an adoptive family that has faced and dealt with these issues sensitively and successfully.Linda A. Meyer, Ph.D.
Great Book -- a must read. Not only does Jodee tell an unforgetable story about her daughter, but it is stock full of incredible information, links, program ideas, and even recipies.
Jodee Kulp is an amazing woman. The fact that she has written of her journey and has helped her daughter Liz to be the advocate she is amazes me constantly. Liz has grown into an amazing woman who brings an awareness to FASD that no one else can. This book helps people to understand what FASD is and how it affects a persons brain. I think it helps people to see that it is not a won't for the FASD person but a can't. That people who are affected by FASD are not trying to be challenging but are seeking ways to comprehend our world. Love the uplifting way that it is presented in this book and the keys to success that are shared. Thank you for sharing your journey with us Jodee and Liz!!!
Your books are fantastic, I would love to translate them into German and get them into circulation in Germany. You have great tips in every direction and every life-situation, wether its nutrition, school and learning, therapies, you name it, youve got something to say. What an inspiration! God bless you.
I am constantly amazed and frustrated by the lack of attention the medical and research community gives to helping families with children impacted by FASD find interventions and techniques that work. Thank God for the Kulps and their willingness to share their journey. It's fantastic to have the benefit of their experience as we travel this path.
